Ginger is widely known for its use in flavoring foods and beverages, but it is also commonly used for medicinal, perfumery, and esthetic purposes. This app note shows how CPC can produce a high-quality standard of -gingerol without the use of silica-based chromatography methods, such as FLASH and prep HPLC.
CPC is recognized as the preferred technology for the purification of high quality Δ-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) for the pharmaceutical and food supplement markets. The objective of this app note was to test the high selectivity of CPC and assess its capability to purify a set of key compounds (THC, CBD, CBN and CBG) and enrich several minor cannabinoids (CBDV, CBCV and CBC).
Chemists are looking for “green” purification methods that can reduce the impact of their work on the environment, particularly from the hazardous materials they use. One chromatography solution, centrifugal partition chromatography (CPC), uses familiar materials but significantly smaller volumes of solvent than traditional chromatography methods.
The legal marijuana and cannabinoid markets continue to grow as researchers discover new applications. Here are some of the latest trends in the industry.
In just a few years, the cannabis industry status has gone from irrelevant and immoral to a pervasive, economic Eldorado with double-digit growth and a better-life promise. It is time to take a step back and discuss several critical pain points within the industry.
The ongoing changes in the legal status of cannabis compounds for medicinal use, as well as the decriminalization of marijuana in some locations, continues to spark interest in the purification and detection of cannabinoids. Learn more about the purification of cannabinoids by centrifugal partition chromatography in this educational webinar.
In this technical note, we highlight how our software and products help you add extra dimensions to your fraction collection possibilities allowing you to set conditions according to specific requirements for synthetic compound purification.
Vanillin is the major component of natural vanilla, which is one of the most widely used flavoring materials worldwide. In this app note, an ethanolic crude extract of vanilla is used to show the capacity of the PLC 2050 system to work with different types of chromatographic columns.
As the drug resistance of malaria parasites increases, the development of innovative and effective antimalaria drugs is of high importance. In this app note, we describe how natural products provide a vast field of new lead structures that are effective in fighting the disease.
